Lou:
I am asking the advice of two people and only two people: you and "ghostofpig" (I didn't realzie that "ghostofpig" used another name for posts here, but now I got that straight.)
The most specific advice I need today, here-and-now are is in regards to the CD's I listed in my original post -- I am writing some stuff and would like to listen to something other than the Grateful Dead but not something as far out of space as that CD I found over the weekend and asked you about. The CD's in my original post here are ones that I have here at the hotel: I have no plans to buy others today or over the weekend when my essays should be complete. -- so if you want to comment on the CD's I list in the original post, then please fire away any comments. At this point, I fully understand it you prefer not to make any comments at all. Thanks for all the value you provide here, ---- AshesRising (Jerri1031-dp3 AT yahoo DOT com)

Oh--oops--yikes--etc.

My bad. I'm always sensitive after I've been a huge asshole!

Any of the Miles--those are all classics. The Trane--well, the Impulse years just cook.

Ellington--not as familiar with those cds as I should be.

Do you want recommendations or just which cd to play first? Kind of Blue is a good preface to Village Vanguard.

ghostofpig; you are fine...all is fine between you and me. ...listen, buddie, I gotta take a day or two to clear my head -- major tragedy in my neighborhood in Boston last night -- too friggin' surrel. You are a good dude, ghostofpig ...not tryin' to be funny in light of what I just witnessed on television, but "Kind of Blue" seems to be callin my hame right now. ====I'll let you know my thoughts about it as long as that is cool with you....

Thanks for the clarification. I would go with Ellington 3 (assuming it has 1940-45 stuff), then Miles 2 and 3 in that order. I prefer the Fats Navarro, Clifford Brown, Booker Little axis of trumpet playing to the Miles Davis axis, but those are good Miles albums.

BTW, you got me thinking this morning of jazz music that might appeal to Deadheads. Sometime soon, I'm likely to post a list of my top choices, should you find yourself wanting to buy or download more in future.
